My grandmother (Dadi) meant the world to me. Her death has been the hardest thing I’ve ever had to deal with. The life lessons she passed on has helped me become the person I’ve become.
She always made me and my sister feel she had been waiting to see just two of us all day and now the day was complete. She holds our tiny hands for just a little while but our hearts forever.
There are so many things that I could say about her, and none of them would do any justice. She is the most incredible human being. Ever. I will never be able to fully put into words how much she means to me, but I can go on for the rest of my life trying. From day one, she have been one of the only person who have been there for me, morning to night, every day of my life, from the second that I was born. From holding me as a baby, to wait for me for lunch when I was away at school. She was always there. She is my lifeline.
I admire her to no end. Her own life was never less than difficult times and hardships, but she still managed to be the most positive person I know. I have never seen her in a bad mood, and I can always count on her to lift my spirits when I need it. She is the strongest and kindest person I know. That strength and perseverance inspires me on a daily basis.
I thank her for unconditionally loving me, no matter what I do. With her, I have never had to live up to an expectation. Her fawns over my slightest of accomplishments ,make me feel like a superhero, even on my worst days. She had been a no judgment zone. My safe heaven. I never have to be anything, but myself with her. I know for a fact that I can tell her absolutely anything, and she will be there for me. Even when she knows that I am making a mistake, she never leaves my side. Rather will make use of that opportunity to teach me a lesson. Her love is so pure, with no reservations, and is unlike any other love in the world.
I thank her for spoiling me in every single way. She has showered me in everything I could have ever wanted or needed. This includes not only materialistic things, but also the things that really count…like food and her cooking lessons. But in addition to all this, she has also spoiled me with her wisdom, which is the best thing I could have ever received. She is the most quotable person I know. I frequently start sentences with, “Well my dadi has always told me…” I can’t imagine how other people get by without her. They must be lost.
I thank her for supplying me with an endless amount of laughter and memories. She knew exactly how to make tears spring to my eyes and make my stomach ache from laughing so hard. Her sense of humor is like no other. I find myself telling stories of her to people on a daily basis because I wish she was there to tell them herself. And I find them laughing along with me. I actually had one of my friends call her the “real life heroine’s” Which, obviously, is the highest of compliments. Her unbelievably unique personality is something so rare. I genuinely feel sorry for those in the world who will never be graced by getting to know her, because she truly is one of a kind.
Most of all, she was not just my Dadi. She was my world. Whenever I need something, I know that she is there. Whether it is strong, sound advice that she never fail to deliver, or a nice long gossip session, I can always count on her. I can also always count on that Insta like too …..Whenever something happens in my life, she is the first person that I want to tell.
I just want to let you know Dadi…
I owe my entire life to you who have helped make me into the person that I am today and the person who has yet to grow.
Everything we’ve shared together is forever filled in a special part of my brain. A place for only you and me. It is somewhere I can go whenever we aren’t together and I’m missing you. It is a place I can go for advice, a good laugh, and a mood enhancer. All I have to do is think of your smile and my day is automatically so much better. You have provided me with so much that I will never be able to pay you back for, but I am going to continue to try every day. I am so unbelievably lucky to have you. Out of all the people in the world, all of the women to become grand moms, I infact we (not to forget her younger and most loving grand daughter) got the best in life.
Love you so much Dadi. ♥
She is the one who taught me lot about food and cooking. I express my heartfelt gratitude for everything that she has done for me and for all…she has touched our lives like no one else can!! Sharing her favorite and one of her signature dessert… Thoughts of luscious grains of fully cooked rice, blended with creamy milk, exotic spices, dry fruits and nuts flooded my mind with her passion for cooking and her love to cook for everyone . And this is my tribute to her trying to replicate the dish that she cooked so often and was wholeheartedly relished, savoured by everyone.
Today I fondly remember her more and more ….On her 10th death anniversary wanted to share the beautiful journey I am blessed with …so this post is a tribute to My Angel .
Being in a jiffy i am not able to post the recipe of kheer…but i promise you to share it soon .
Thanks for reading !! Much Love.
